    The half-timbered house, built in 1416, is an excellent masterpiece of rural-bourgeois building and living culture of the Middle Ages and at the same time a primal example of old Moselle winegrowers' houses.
    The building is located on the market square and is striking because of its unusual design, because it grows upwards in a very small space and therefore bears his name. It is said that the reason for this type of construction was on the one hand the property tax, which at that time only had to be paid for the built-up area; On the other hand, the alley to which the Spitzhäuschen is located was too narrow, with its usual, uniform design, so that earlier the ox wagons could not have passed the alley because of its width.
    The cozy wine bar of the Schmitz-Herges family winery has been located in the 500-year-old building since 1970. There you can experience conviviality and wonderful hours together in a special atmosphere and taste the range of over 50 Riesling and red wines from our own vineyards.

    This is the narrowest wine shop in Germany. Below the house is only 2m wide.

    Very striking half-timbered house in the old town of Bernkastel.
